My call ahead seating reservation was a day off, but I didn't even realize it. They simply sat us as though we were there on the right day. :)
Enjoyed the salmon bowl, and my co diner has the fish and chips. Inventive sides with it. Coffee was great, the biscuits ample and the stuffed mushroom appetizer very tasty too. Our server was attentive and friendly and the restaurant was on point with masking.

The only thing I would adjust would be to insure the table is completely dry before seating (bacteria lives in water, and dissipates with surface drying).

Loud and full of children treating the restaurant like a race track. Servers we constantly tripping over children and I had maskless juvenile strangers constantly invading my table. The ambiance at a chucky cheese is better.

I'm not a fish eater but Red Lobster was one of few places available for in person dining at the time I wanted. We were impressed by the COVID precautions, including every other booth being kept open to ensure space between parties. I had the salmon and my companion had lobster which I tried, both were delicious. Both the greeter and server were wonderfully friendly and helpful.

My wife of almost 40 years and I used to go to Red Lobster way back in the early 80's. For us mid-westerners, it was our only opportunity to eat quality seafood back then. I am really struggling to understand why this franchise has gone SO downhill. Snow crab legs are now the cheap Chinese buffet's dwarf legs in size, alcohol drinks have undetectable amounts of alcohol in them, and my baked potato was under baked and crunchy. For the money spent, I cant understand why I would go there again...WAY too many better ways to drop 100 bucks...

Using the Internet Red Lobster "Wish List" to save a space was very easy and it worked beautifully. Upon arrival at the appointed. time, the four of us were seated immediately.
Waitress was perfect and alert to our requests. Very nice time was had by the four of us.

Food was excellent, a little pricey. But a nice choice for Christmas Eve. It could have used a more festive decor though.

Traun was our waiter. Excellent service, very pleasant and a real hustler. Everything was served warm and met our expectations

While we had a "open table" the hostess, who was new, didn't know anything about it. I tried to explain it to her, but she wasn't having it. I asked her to check in with her manager, to which she replied, "I'm new." To which I replied that was okay. In other words; get the manager to explain how this works so you can grow from this experience. She gave us a beeper, but it never went off. If she had told me they were going to call me; I would have checked my phone.
While the food was tasty, it was so slow. The waitress no was super cute. Just an fyi - when you have a drink order, bring them before the food.
We'll take a break from Red Lobster.

We arrived at our reservation and was told 35 minutes wait time. After 50 minutes and watching 3 people who'd arrived after us be seated i approached the staff. A manager looked me in the eyes and said the next table available he'd seat us. Another 4 people later I approached another staff member. We were finally seated once another table was cleared. Am hour after our arrival and people who'd walked in the door without pre booking were seated before us. Totally unacceptable service

My husband and son shared the ultimate feast. The crab legs and lobster disappeared. Salad was excellent. Steak fixed to perfection - true measure of a great Chief. We also enjoyed the biskets and Alec was super great about bringing us more! Thank you for a great night!
